We love Laurel Springs! The combination of academic rigor, flexibility, and supportive teachers and staff has been fantastic for my family. My son is graduating this year and was accepted early action into the engineering program at his first choice college. My 8th-grade daughter is loving the flexibility that LSS gives her to take challenging courses and still has plenty of time for her gymnastics training schedule.

Setting A Course For College

Upper School preparation is foundational to the Middle School curriculum that will prepare your student for future college admissions.

  • Dedicated support from teachers who will help your student achieve their goals in preparation for a successful transition to Upper School. 
  • Resources and webinars provided by the Counseling Department connected to academic offerings, and social and emotional development and support.
  • Opportunities to identify and explore areas of interest through course and club selection.

We tried several private schools in our area that all seemed to have their own issues. Public schools in our area are some of the worst in the state, so we decided to look for a better option. Laurel Springs has been a wonderful fit for both of our daughters. One is in her first year of high school and the other is in 7th grade. It also allows our family the flexibility to travel on our own schedule. We love it!

This year has been TOTALLY fulfilling for my 8th grade son! This is TRULY what he needed this year. The very rigorous academics coupled with the scheduling of awesome field trips (virtual and otherwise) has been more than what I had expected. I would highly recommend Laurel Springs to others (& I do)!
